Warm-up Notice and Wonder: Piet Mondrian’s Art
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Activity 1 My Mondrian Outline
Create an outline for art in the Mondrian style, starting with an 18-by-24 grid.
Your artwork should:
be partitioned into at least 12 rectangles
include two different rectangles that have the same area
include at least one rectangle whose area is a prime number
Try at least one of these challenges. Make a design where:
all but two of the rectangles have a prime number for its area
no two rectangles share a side entirely
Activity 2 Analyze the Rectangles
Trade artwork with your partner.
Using your partner’s artwork, look for and describe each of the following:
Rectangles that have the same area
Rectangles with an area that is a prime number
Rectangles with an area that is a composite number
